Was thinking of sending some gu cards to some players who have a good TTM record and seeing if i can get them signed... I was wondering if anyone else has tried this, and how it has worked.... Do you do anything different as far as shipping (i.e. i usually don't send in a toploader)

lmk
thanks

here are a couple I've sent...I just use one of those magnetic snap holders that is big enough for whatever GU I send...they work well for this...and then just bubble mailers smaller SASE inside of a bigger one.

I sent this one out and thought it would look great signed and since Joe T is a great TTM signer I figured not much to lose...too bad I forgot to rub it down with powder before I sent it....



Then there is this one....Ron Cey...another great TTM'er so figured it was safe to send...it's #001/250 :

this is the only one i have got

odds are if you send out in a PWE even in a toploader its going to get creased still, mine did even though you can't really tell in the scan

Funny - the only damage I've had with getting a signed TTM back in the mail was with a GU'd. I'm guessing it was the auto-sorting machine that did the trick.

I live on the east coast and sent a TTM to Bobby Doerr in Oregon. The return was super quick, but the card came back creased. I don't work in the postal industry, but I'd guess the envelope went through the maximum number of auto-sorters possible.

I'd hate to think that is true because that would mean each and every trade I have done with a GU in a bubble and toploader has been damaged and not one person has said anything about it

you are prob right....bubble mailer prob ok if you put a blank or something in there to brace it...but i wouldn't risk it in a regular envelope...i've seen some bubble mailers come in that look like the driver sat on it to pad his seat lol.
